The competition was interesting. I disliked some of the characters but the presentation of the cooking skills was smooth and entertaining. The judges were pretentious. It is so difficult to follow judging that is based on taste because the viewer cannot taste the product. It seemed that, at times, when something was beautifully done, the judges claim it taste bad. I feel that might be more comment from the production team than the actual flavor of the product. If you enjoying cooking competitions but often time find argument with the favor judging, I suggest skipping the end of each episode: enjoy the competition and avoid the production input moments. The program is likable.
